The interior minister of Pakistan, Rana Sanaullah, claimed that the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) is attacking the country using Afghanistan soil.
In a press conference on Thursday, the Pakistani official said that preventing the TTP's activities is good for both Kabul and Islamabad.
“See, this promise is not only for us, but for the whole world. They (the Taliban) promised to the whole world that the Afghanistan’s soil would not be used for any terrorism. If they (the Taliban) follow it, it is not only in the benefit of Pakistan but it is their own benefit, if they want to go with the world,” Pakistan's interior minister Rana Sanaullah said.
According to the Pakistani interior minister, TTP has all of its equipment in Afghanistan and nearly 5,000 of its fighters are there hiding.
However, the Islamic Emirate Ministry of Defense rejected the claim of the Interior Minister of Pakistan, saying that Afghan soil will not be used against any country.
"Once again, we reassure all the nations in the region and the world that Afghanistan's soil will never be used against other countries. There is no threat coming from inside Afghanistan and there never will be,” said Enayatullah Khwarazmi, defense ministry spokesman.
Meanwhile, some political experts urged the Afghan government to address these allegations with the Pakistani government.
"The Islamic Emirate of the Taliban needs to look into this issue and ask them to provide us the relevant documents so that we may look into this issue, but if their claims are false, let the world know," said Aziz Marij, a political expert.
"As Pakistan says in words, it should prove in practice that Afghanistan's security and stability are in their best interests, and both parties should avoid the bitter history of embracing one other's enemies," said Hassan Haqyar, another political expert.
Earlier, the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan, with the mediation of the Islamic Emirate, signed a ceasefire with the government of Pakistan.
But the TTP breached the cease-fire and started attacking Pakistani soldiers two days ago when a delegation from Pakistan visited Kabul.
